Those Special Dachshunds: Meet Fritz the Kangaroo Hunter!

Check out this handsome red shaded longhair who hails all the way from Australia! He looks exhausted after a long day of tracking kangaroos. His human, Sue Moses, writes:

Dear Joey and Maggie,

Fritz is a long haired dachshund living in Denver, Australia. He was looking for a new home and had not been a house dog or a pet, but guess what, he loves the indoors, cushions and cuddles and adores his two Jack Russell friends and going for walks with them in the bush and sniffing around after kangaroos. He is extremely loyal and never goes out of my sight and he loves doing a sausage roll rollovers on the carpet. I tell my friends: “it’s a dachshund thing”!

It sure is.

What a good lookin' doxie! What a wonderful life he has found, no wonder he doesn't let you out of his sight. Has Fritz found kangaroos? What does he do if he does? Jeeves wants to know. Melinda

I love those shaded longhairs - they are such beautiful doxies and Fritz is no exception. Thanks for sharing his photo and story.

There are kangaroos in our paddock every morning. I have to be careful as the jack russells Tuppy and Ally will chase after them, but not fritz, he loves running around after their scent but he never goes out of my sight because he is just too loyal! He loves all the smells in the Australin bush but he doesn't seem to have much of a hunting instinct, I think he is just too gentle.
